Detroit’s Grand Bargain: Philanthropy as a Catalyst for a Brighter Future

The USC Center on Philanthropy & Public Policy (The Center) welcomed Judge Gerald E. Rosen, the court-appointed mediator in Detroit’s historic bankruptcy case, for the inaugural case discussion presented through The Center’s newly established Irene Hirano Inouye Philanthropic Leadership Fund. Judge Rosen was joined by Rip Rapson, CEO and president of The Kresge Foundation, and Darren Walker, president of the Ford Foundation, whose bold leadership and philanthropic contributions played in integral role in the complex negotiations that eventually lifted Detroit out of bankruptcy.
